F2 Race Ti Screws too short?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had a problem with the stock mounting screws for the F2 Race Ti's being too short to mount said bindings to your board? The thicker ptex topsheets seem to be an issue for me. I have never had this issue with Bombers.

 

What would be an appropriate replacement screw/dimension that you'd recommend?

Yes, depending on the insert depth it can be an issue. In such cases I generally use a pan head with washer (it also doesn't eat the disc the way the serated F2 screws do) or truss screw . You can run any old M6 into the insert to check depth and then assess how long your screw needs to be.

I've used all of these in the past depending on the binding and the need:

Those are reference links- check your depths.

You can generally find either stainless or zinc coated M6 hardware at your local hardware or Ace (you might even have a Fastenal or local specialty hardware place).

Also note that F2 screws are Pozidriv, and most replacment hardware in the US is either a metric socket or Philips. Not a big deal, but use the correct driver or you'll be wearing out your screw heads.

Thanks for the info.  Was short 2 machine screws for the F2 Sports.  Might as well pick up a bunch.  Very timely.🏂

Also, stock F2 mounting screws are 7.5mm long, so you can reference from there.
